Access Point "F"
35.84522°, 93.04158°
(At this point you have to go way down the hillside
to avoid all the rock slides and briars
next to the bluffs. You then head west and then
back up to the bluffs where ever possible)
This is where we headed back up.
(I would not recommend doing this
in the summer months)
This is looking up at East Vista
Some of the bluffs as we head west.
Avery Falls
35.84435°, 93.04578°
A full bottle of Avery Beer was found at the
base of the waterfall.....thus we named it
Avery Falls.
Evidence of rock climbing here.
